An excellent little cigar and a superb way to spend half to three quarters of an hour. The vitola possesses the classic Upmann profile.
H. Upmann Coronas Major is really a fine cigar and that fact that it comes as a tubo makes it highly portable for being on the go. The package looks classy too, so definitely 5/5 :)
Mine was hand-made, but it could have been machine-made just as well, since the draw was a little bit tight. However, this single fact didn't spoil the pleasure.
The flavors of strong, very, very strong tobacco are the main ingredient, add to that freshly ground oily Italian espresso beans, then strip a vanilla stock and add the beans, then drizzle cream soda and honey, then you're half way there. The real unmistakable treat is the classic H. Upmann must smell, anyone who has smoked a well aged Upmann knows what I mean.
These are not the most expensive Marevas out there, it's possible to find better quality for a slightly higher price.
Overall Rating :
The problem with this cigar is that you're not always sure to find a good one - I heard that very often the draw is extremely tight which makes it difficult to smoke. However, if you manage to put your hands on the right one - you will certainly enjoy a great cigar.
